A Light Melody - Charles D. Herold

    I was born one bright morn, and proceeded to float to the ceiling.
    My doctor was alarmed but also rather charmed, a floating baby seemed appealing.
    My parents were amused for awhile, to have a flying baby,
    But then they put soles of lead on my shoes, 'cause the neighbors all said that it seemed crazy.

    But I don't know why I even bother
    Wearing suits of heavy mail,
    'Cause every time I get my feet back on the ground,
    Gravity always seems to fail.

    I used to take off my shoes, and float up to the sky,
    But my parents kept a string around my waist, so I would not go up too high.
    The other kids they didn't like me, they called me Peter Pan.
    They wanted me to teach them all how to fly, but I couldn't make them understand.

    [Repeat Chorus]

    When I grew up I fell in love, with a girl so soft and shy.
    I didn't let her know I was as light as air, you know she always made me high.
    One night she said she loved me, that made my heart feel light,
    So I floated right out through the sun-roof, and' haven't seen her since that night.

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I don't go in the sky anymore, I keep my feet down on the ground,
    'Cause last time I went flying overhead, duck hunters tried to shoot me down.
    I've finally concluded that all my friends were right,
    And God would have given me wings if S/He'd really wanted me to fly

    [Repeat Chorus]
